Product Description


?The author examines the evolution of the urban homesteading program in the United States from its inception in 1974 through 1986. After describing the program's components, she analyzes the local urban homesteading programs of three cities--Baltimore, Detroit, and Philadelphia--describing their use of federal resources and local initiatives. She also presents historical and legislative perspective on the national and local programs. In addition, the influences of federalism, intergovernmental relations, and policy implementation on urban homesteading are addressed.?-Journal of Planning Literature
